|Pat Mitchell, left, with Jane Fonda.|
In each unique and compelling half-hour episode, the guest’s life-story is intertwined with numerous examples of her work, taking advantage of the Paley Center’s collection. Mitchell also speaks with each guest about the enormous impact of the media on women.
A unique, signature element of the series is a short performance, reading or monologue selected and performed by the guest: for example, Marlo Thomas reads an excerpt from her autobiography about her marriage to Phil Donahue; Jane Fonda reads an excerpt from her book about her decision to end her marriage to Ted Turner; Eve Ensler performs a short monologue; and Glenn Close sings an a cappella rendition of a lullaby she co-authored for her recent film, “Albert Nobbs.” This very personal coda to the show is selected by each guest.
Broadcast Schedule on WNET THIRTEEN Thursdays at 8:30pm
